People Development

We agree with leaders: people are the most valuable asset

The strongest leaders know that investing in people development is the best way to support and empower your most valuable asset: the people that drive success at all levels of your business.

At VMEC, we aim to help companies engage, train, and mentor their existing team members, as well as to find, attract and onboard new ones. We have the experience, know-how and network to work with you and make your investment in your people really count.

Research and Evidence Based Outcomes

Current research tells us that a team of well led, trained, and engaged individuals is more productive, stays longer, provides higher customer satisfaction, innovates more and ultimately brings a competitive advantage. It is your people that will set you apart from the competition.

Our Goal

Our mission is to strengthen and empower Vermont manufacturers. We can do this by assisting you in finding, hiring, and training the right people and developing the processes that will result in that competitive advantage.
